INIHAYAG ni Senador Antonio Trillanes IV nitong Linggo na maghahain siya ng resolusyon na naglalayong hilingin sa Senado ang imbestigasyon hinggil sa sinasabing bank records nina Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte at mga miyembro ng kanyang pamilya.
“With this resolution, I am accepting President Duterte’s challenge to investigate his alleged ill-gotten wealth to once and for all reveal the truth on this issue. The public wants to know the truth and it’s in the hands of the Senate to uncover it,” ayon kay Trillanes.
Aniya, ihahain niya ang nasabing resolusyon ngayong Lunes.
Bago umalis patungo sa India nitong 24 Enero, sinabi ni Duterte na handa siyang paimbestigahan sa Kongreso ang sinasabing kanyang yaman upang matapos na ang isyu.
Sinabi ni Trillanes, Duterte “must address this issue squarely once and for all.”
“If he has nothing to hide, he should bare it all and sign the waiver. On the contrary, he has been dilly-dallying in his statements, and instead has been bluffing the people by publicly ordering AMLC (Anti-Money Laundering Council) to investigate his alleged bank accounts, although we all know that AMLC would not do it unless he signs a waiver on bank secrecy,” dagdag ng senador.
Ayon sa senador, hihilingin niya sa Senado na busisiin ang bank documents ni Duterte at kanyang anak na si Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
Sinabi ni Trillanes, sa pamamagitan nito ay maisisiwalat ang “undisclosed covered transactions or bank transactions exceeding P500,000, which may have violated the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA).”
